Are these old wooden forms for hat making? Thanks!

Hi all!

I could use any and all help to identify these wooden objects. My father collected old wooden things that appealed to him... Are they hat forms/blocks? Or some other clothing forms? The large pair stands about 8 inches tall. As a pair they seem to be two sides of something. Hoping the photos can provide enough information.

Thanks so very much for your consideration.

I don't think so because puzzle hat blocks usually have grooves and slats where the would fit together and hold that way.  Doesn't mean they could not be used for hat blocking however. :)

I agree Sharon and if they were part of a puzzle block there are some pieces missing as each set has 5 pieces. No pin/tack holes so never used for hatting. My hubby thinks they may be casting moulds used in a foundry.
